It's really too bad. Cliff has a lot of knowledge to share, and I have leaned a lot from some of his posts. But unfortunately his negatives outweigh his positives. Until more of his regular buddies call him out on this he's never going to change. Kudos to Tell for having the guts to finally say something.

Cliff comes and goes like the waves on the sand. He and I had a clash of epic proportions a couple of years back the origins of which are lost in obscurity. These days we get along pretty well, which admittedly is no guarantee for the future. You take people as they come and deal with them according to your lights. A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest, as Paul Simon said.

What the fuck?

I cant imagine why anyone gives a flying fuck about what I post about 80's Dead!

I am as entitled to my opinion as everyone else to theirs. If Billydillions said 1968 sucked, I would just laugh and not even bother responding.

Why do the 80's zealots get so riled up so easily?

As far as the 80's are concerned, the zealots are just going to have to deal. This is not a nursery school here. If anyone posted that 1968 sucked, I wouldnt soil myself the way some over-sensitive folks here do. It's not worth getting so upset Billy, its just music!

In my opinion any perceived value you may occasionally bring to conversations here is completely diminished when you choose to participate in a way that purposely angers, belittles, and provokes people simply because they like something you hate.

That's cool, forgiveness for mistakes is one thing, but I'm talking about something I consider differently. I'm not saying the guy is guilty of the crime of the century or anything. I just find it bewildering that many of the regular posters here condone and even encourage behavior that is specifically designed to alienate and marginalize myself and other fans of the Dead, especially considering the nature of this site. I can't help but wonder why this kind of sadism (actively enjoying making other people feel pain and upset) is accepted here. Is it because it discourages a certain type of person from participating in the forum? Or do people just think it's funny because they agree that the 80s suck? I get freedom of speech and all. It's probably all of these reasons.

Whatever, like I said, not a huge deal, I just can't help but shake my head and wonder at human nature when I see someone openly enjoy and actively promote the misery of another human being, even when it's over something as "small" as their taste in music. It's like bullies in a schoolyard, a microcosm of bigger problems in the world at large.

Yeah, it was a slow day at work. Still recovering from the Jackass Flats show Saturday night. Bunch of guys from Richmond - a bluegrass, Americana "hootenanny for your head" kind of throwdown. Really fun show - they started at 10:30 on saturday night and played until 1:30 AM Sunday - then unplugged and played for another 1/2 hour. They have a couple of shows up on the Archive, you should check them out if you get the chance.

JG - although I do understand your point, i also think that if what Cliff is doing is actually causing MISERY to other posters here, it is somewhat their fault for taking him so seriously. It is simply a case of having fun with pushing people's buttons on a message board. If they dont like it, they shouldnt read it. i dont like Cliff's manner sometimes, but I am also very very guilty of doing the same thing for the same reason. I think we are all making a mountain out of a molehill on this one (much to Cliff's delight I am sure - just like I get a kick out of this type of behavior at times.)

I completely get it, Dire. I agree with you to the extent that this is not anything of any great import and that people are ultimately responsible for their own feelings and reactions. But it's not really fair to judge other people's reactions to words on a screen by simply saying they are just words on a screen, and people shouldn't get so upset. I can only speak for myself when I auggest that however moronic I may be, I have a reaction to this kind of behavior. I find it mean spirited, and bullying, and I've seen it often enough that I felt the need to comment on it.

Hey JG--for what it's worth, you have discussed this all very rationally to my way of thinking...Yep, CLIFF, by his own admission, enjoys pushing people's buttons...now, frankly, I probably "dis-enjoy" the 80s more than him, and I suppose I refrain from commenting on it regularly (though you all "know it") because it would be both redundant, and off-putting to some, esp newbies (whom I value--in the sense of adding more perspective).

Now, as for not taking him seriously, or me (when I do, tongue in cheek, say something nasty--esp to, say, Dire), I would echo what Dire and CLIFF rambled on about above--just completely blow it off since it is just a "game" at that point, which you clearly don't see as such, and don't enjoy, etc. (which is perfectly reasonable).

The one post of CLIFF's that bothered me was his comment toward Rich...now, my sense of it is the two of them have some "history", but the profanity directed at someone just for stating "hey, why'd you say that?" was unnecessary, and that's what I thought CLIFF shouldn't do...he acknowledged that, to a degree, in his reply to me, but in the end, I can't sort out whatever bad blood may have passed between two posters that leads to such exchanges, and have come to realize I can chime in now and again, but that's about it...

We all pretty much have to accept one another at some level here, even the trolls, even the ones that push buttons (kid pics of an odd even inappropriate nature? WTF? But, hey, maybe that poster is just doing to CLIFF what CLIFF sees as his "fun with pushing buttons"...dunno) and leave it at that...

I get the game, trust me, I get it, I do the same thing, you can say things among friends that you'd never say to people you don't know. Horrible, inappropriate things, that friends tolerate, enjoy, and think is funny. And one of the great things about being a Deadhead is the feeling like you've got friends all over the world. There's always a line to be crossed though, and to me, it's when you are purposely being cruel for the simple pleasure(?) of fucking with strangers and provoking a reaction. It may be entertaining to a few, but it's got nothing to do with second sets in the 80s, and like you said it's ground that's been covered ad nauseum here.

and i agree with you to some extant also. I just found myself being a bit hypocritical of Cliff, when i at times do the same thing just to get a rise out of people. not sure I would call it bullying, but i understand your position on the matter.

I know when I sit back and think about it, that it's totally ridiculous that I get upset when some stranger posts a cartoon of a person vomiting blood on a thread about a show I saw and loved, or some other stranger describes Jerry's singing voice as someone gargling carpet tacks and broken glass. It's crazy, but I hate it and it's not the kind of behavior I expect from a GD forum. But most expectations are bullshit anyway. I also understand that this forum is full of by far the most intelligent, insightful commentary on the Dead and their music I have ever come across in my years surfing the web. The kind of openness and honesty that is inspired by an unmoderrated forum, is totally worth the BS I often come across as well.

Good to see you working it out better. I had similar reactions in the past and after a few attempts to say my peace, I too realized we can take away a lot here once we recognize the pitfalls for what they are. Some folks idea of fun (and what makes for good music) may be different than mine, but it seems that ‘whining’ about it rarely leads to a feeling of ‘winning’. peace

I completely agree!

How facinating that we can have attended the very same shows but come away with comepletely different opinions about the music that was performed...

Cliff:

I have a question, which you've probably answered before. Did you think the shows sucked then or only after listening later and comparing to your preferences now? I ask because while I went to some real clunkers, I thought many of the shows I saw at the time were really damn good (7-13-84 and 7-15-84, the MSG "La Bamba/Morning Dew" show, etc). However, I never choose to relive those shows over other things - but occasionally revisit if its an anniversary or someone posts the link in talking about it. For me, those shows only started to dim after I got a daily earful of great shows from the late 60s through mid 70s. Same with you - or did you know then?

Of course, Im listening to Ryan Adams and the Cardinals right now, so what do I know? Just curious (and still shaking my head in disbelief at tourney seedings...)

Hey BD--I think I've answered before too, but what the Hell...I did think that the 75 shows were great...the others, I often had highlights, when I said "whhooo! what a great M&MU!" (amazing, eh?) but often had a nagging feeling, esp if I brought someone to "show them the stuff!", that it wasn't as good as it should've been...

Now, as JOTS and I spoke of, I still loved going with the friends and all that, so there was little regret...but, I'd sometimes sell my ticket for later shows in the week long run or whatever, so I suppose that proves something was wrong with me then, huh? If I had something really great to do, I'd opt out if you follow...

Nowadays it's so different--I go with my wife, and if it isn't a good show, I know it right then and there...no drugs, not much of anything, so it has to be good...hmmm, hope the wife isn't reading this, but you get the idea. The biggest thought in my mind is "how can I sit in this frickin chair for three hrs!!??" and "I should have brought my drugs!?!".

I enjoyed virtually all of the nearly 100 shows that I attended between '79 and '90.

And I did like the music although, even then I preffered the old shows that I had on cassette.

Its only since discovering LMA in 2005 that I have come to loathe the 80's...

This thread is tiresome.

My son, who is 4, is told "keep your hands to yourself" and "be nice to your sister" on a daily basis. Yet, he just loves to antagonize and continues until I drop the "Go to your room" hammer. Then he cries and says, "but I'll be nice now!".

Thus, I don't need this from alleged grown-ups at a GD forum.

I'll take Cliff's advice and stop reading his posts regarding the '80's. Then I'll lick my finger and stick it in his ear while he's sleeping in the car. Wet Willy!

Not when you two are riding in the back seat of my car you won't...cause that metal restraining device installed across the back seat the 17th time one of you shouted "he's touching me!" keeps the both of you entirely incapable of doing much of anything except filling your pampers (sorry, somebody else brought it up).

maybe a trade can be in the works in the near future :)

Well I for one cannot vouch for just how hostile your rectum may or may not be, but I'm guessing that would be more uncomfortable for you than any of us.
As much as I may disagree with you from time to time, it certainly doesn't make me wish disgusting bodily ailments upon you as some here appartently do.
Keep on keeping on and just know that I will continue to throughly enjoy some well spent time in the late 70's - early 80's. But, and as always, there will be regular stops back in the "olden days".

JK, in fact, I pretty well followed all the way thru, though that's sorta scary, eh? And, I was just hoping we'd divert this thread off into the usual inane hijack, and with all of our back and forth posting, requiring clarification and what not, we probably just about pulled it off! Agreed?

If not, just shove the keyboard up your ass and type the next reply with your prostate--It'll probably be another amazingly insightful production from yet another Forumite Black Hole.

isnt "communication" a wonderful thing?? Although shoving this keyboard up my ass may require some work. 17" Alienware laptop - big and heavy - it will require some stretching only seen beforehand in the great rift valleys of Africa and the southernmost portion of the lower Rockies. And before you can make any further comments relating this undertaking to a Black Hole, you can just suck on my Event Horizon, you Prime Minister of the Nether Regions.
